I could see Vinga's "Heal Injury" as a general cure-all for small stuff (ie the "injury" level of wound). If you use my "level of severity" penalty of -15 (3 levels of difference between "Hurt" and "Dying"), a *really skilled* Vingan might be able to use it to cure a Dying person, but that's what, 45 or so HP spent on that particular affinity to simply overcome the penalty. Whereas a CA using "Heal Dying" would be able to to do exactly the same thing at beginning level...

C'est par mon ordre et pour le bien de l'Etat que le porteur du pr�sent a fait ce qu'il a fait.
